Monica Ross and Co-Recitors: Anniversary - An Act of Memory

Thursday 16 February 2012, 23:00

FRI 17 FEB 7.30pm Free
Anniversary - an act of memory is a performance series in 60 acts focusing on the importance and relevance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Launched in December 2008 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Declaration, it features solo, collective and multi-lingual recitations from memory of the entire UDHR by Monica Ross and Co-Recitors. Each recitation is uniquely shaped by the producers and co-recitors who deliver it. The emphasis is not on perfect recall, but on the attempt to remember and the difficulty of fulfilling the Declaration's call to keep it 'constantly in mind,' especially when under pressure. This recitation is part of the Anniversary - an act of memory UK Tour 2011 - 2013 and supported by Arts Council England.
